Ancient thatched inn with hospitable owners, good food and real ales; bedrooms

Customers have been welcomed here since the 13th c although it must be one of the oldest 'new' inns around. You'll be sure of a cheerful greeting from the hands-on licensees, and from Captain, the chatty Amazon blue parrot, too, and there are always plenty of chatty regulars. The U-shaped, thatched building has the servery in the ?angle' with interestingly furnished areas leading off it: ancient and modern settles, cushioned stone wall seats, some character tables (a pheasant worked into the grain of one) and carved dressers and chests. Also, paraffin lamps, antique prints on the white walls, landscape-decorated plates on one beam and pewter tankards on another. Otter Ale and Sharps Doom Bar with a guest such as the local Hunters Half Bore or Shepherd Neame Spitfire on handpump, local cider, 16 wines by the glass and a dozen malt whiskies; background music, darts and board games. There are chairs and tables on decking beneath a pruned willow tree by the babbling stream, and more in a covered dining area. Bedrooms are peaceful and comfortable and the breakfasts are very good indeed.
